Threads of Gold: The Ballad of Tam Lin and the Perils of Enchantment

Learning and Community

W

hat happens when the worlds touch one another? This is one of the questions that the Ballad of Tam Lin seeks to address.

You have probably experienced this too. A moment of the hair on the back of your neck raising in sudden awareness, maybe the feeling of an angel or holy helper who has your back, or a dream that wraps itself around you for the whole day…

Enchantment doesn’t always happen on our time-table, on our own terms. Even when it does, we don’t always know what to do with it. We can become lost, knocked off track, or distracted…what used to be called fairy-led, if we are not careful and do not know how to orient ourselves with respect to the Otherworld.

In the Spinning Gold Module One teaching call, I discussed the concept of being fairy-led, the unusual times and occasions when the worlds touch one another, the need for tools that are suitable for the liminal, and how we might find a beneficial and practical way to look and live with these experiences.

Module One itself offers real tools, including the tale of Tam Lin, to begin framing and working with these experiences, in order to discover how they can in fact work within our lives.

I hope you enjoy the little clip we’ve compiled from the two hour talk.  Listen here!
